I'm still working on the same project as for the past few weeks. Just a small wall quilt but hand applique. Hand applique is definitely not my cuppa but the design caught my eye. Smile Here's a WIP pic. Still a few weeks at least till the finish.

I'm a member of our local modern quilt guild. The Michael Miller Fabric Co gives fabric and asks that people make a quilted project with it. The only rules are that you can add solid fabric or any other Michael Miller fabric.

Here is my entry. It's one of the first modern type quilts I've done.

WQFC, love your modern quilt. My DD's friends all love that modern look.

I've been working on baby shower favors today. So fast made from styrofoam cups. Will buy some round tulle pieces to stuff in the cups. Trying to decide which way to make them. Need to find out if it's a boy or girl. I hope it's a girl because I do love the lace and fancy bows.

DD wanted a hand made gift for her 30th birthday so I made this backgammon set. The game board is quilted, the bags have cord stop pulls,and the game pieces were purchased. She loved it Smile

Jill, love that quilt. Who woulda thunk to make a backgammon board from fabric? Great idea.

Absolutley love everything. Couldn't make the modern quilt if my life depended on it. Volunteered to make my friend a quilt out of her old hankies. So far I've done two pieces. .a hanky panky square and a small table runner. Thought instead of cutting up the last dozen hankies, I'd just stitch them to a single piece of fabric and go from there. Didn't work. Somehow when I went to quilt it, it got all wonky. Past week I have been unstitching 12 hanies and their quilting from the main piece. Going to put them away for a while and do something small.

No sewing around here for a while, or for a while longer, but my Horizon hopped in the car for a trip tomorrow. Her little sister already went.

I haven't done any sewing, but last weekend PatriciaAnne & I went to the Sisters Quilt Show! It was crazy hot & based on the pics I saw on the TQS blog we missed quite a few quilts Smile

Here are my pics...I hope the link works for you.

A friend is hosting a baby shower for her grandchild. The theme is jungle animals so I ran to JoAnns this morning and bought fabric for a quick quilt. Nothing easier than nine 12" churn dash blocks. I put matching flannel on the back. Now I've finished the binding I can work on the matching burp cloths. Very subtle colors.

Really love the modern quilt and the backgammon game is really cute. Here is my finish for the week. It is a Quilt of Valor. My first one. I adapted a pattern that had a black and bright star and made it patriotic.

I made a diaper changing pad, embroidered burp cloths, and made 3 baskets. I have fabric for one larger basket and need to get buttons and do the handwork. Otherwise it's been a productive day. DH always worries when he goes to his lease and leaves me alone. I get so much done! Had liver and onions for lunch. Yum! Tomorrow I'll enjoy salmon croquettes. Yum Yum!

Love the sunny side up table topper. One reason I bought a round table was because I do love the effect of a round table centerpiece on a round table. That fabric is awesome.

Love the rw&b star. So smart to change the colors.

Evelyn, I can't believe you got all that done today. Amazing. You are so creative.
Jill, Your quilting is outstanding, Gives me some ideas for a quilt that is waiting to be finished.
Bozie, nice job on Sunbonnet that is going to be a very pretty wallhanging.
Fluer, Where did you find the pattern and pieces for the game? Never would have thought of that, very creative.
Islandtime, anyone would love those toss pillows, your friend is very lucky. Sew cute.
Glassnquilt, Very nice QOV, lucky person to get that one.
Hey Sue, you know who has a nice round table? LOL

Nice projects this week.

Patty J and Sister Sue, I am working on that pattern too. I still have another border to make before my top will be pieced. I really like your layout. If my center wasn't already sewn together, I might have tried the way you did yours. The quilting is looking good too. Those circles create a nice pattern in the white space. I bet you are loving your new machine!

WQFC--Your modern quilt is very nice. I especially like how you divided the white space with different quilting designs. I am getting to appreciate the modern looks more and more--I even have some squares of solids cut to start one.

There are times when you think that you've got the plans all set for your next quilt, and then you decide to do a little bit more looking around & you find a few more patterns that would work just as well if not better! Decisions, decisions! *sigh*

I've been working on a memory quilt for a dear friend- it's made out of her daughter's pj's. After I got the blocks done for the first quilt- a queen-size, I realized that I still had alot of 2 & 1/2in. strips cut & I needed to find another quilt pattern to use those remaining strips. Once I get this second quilt done, I will have to find yet another pattern because I still have the front/back of the pj tops that haven't been touched (other than to have stabilizer ironed on).

And if that wasn't enough, I still have her daughter's t-shirts to make a quilt out of! I'm fairly certain that I've got the quilt pattern for that thank goodness! Just have to order the pattern & templates, but I won't start working on the t-shirts until I've got the pj quilts done.

Happy Stitching All!
Susan

Love your trailer. That's such cute a design. I've been looking at this trailer design as a machine cover:

Thanks for all the kind words about my quilt. It's such a new 'genre' for me, so your comments mean so much to me.

PS...I love the little trailer too!

love the trailer, my friend has a camper- it's a 5th wheel- but that okay, I am still going to make her one similar to the one that you did, it is a lot cuter than these modern ones.

Ruffled leg pants for my 8 year DGD-the black seen is a purchased tank top to go with the pants.

She liked them but I did not get a picture with her wearing them yet.

Love the camper mug rug. I have a quilt kit that includes a similar looking camper and fire.

Glad you like the camper trailer mug rug. I saw the pattern on Craftsy and it was just what I wanted. Smile
